I've had a 4790k for almost a year now, and with the original stock heatspreader and stock speeds, it would go over 90 degrees at load easily, temps shooting up ridiculously quickly. Since I popped this Noctua NH-D15 on it, I have been over clocked @ 4.7 GHz 24/7 with temps never going over 70.

They need to provide adequate cooling for their processors out of the box, and if they're going to skimp on the TIM as well, at least make it easily replaceable. These chips are expensive, and they deserve better.

if you listened to everything your 'fans' on reddit posted, no matter how good your game is or how minor the issue they have, you would soon realize that the entire fucking project and the life you have been living up to this point in time, is 100% mistakes

Except you can't do any of the new free roam lobby jobs unless you're in a public sever... Rockstar really starting to piss me off with the public lobby only shit.

Ran into that when I tried to do some of the stunt stuff a few weeks ago. Kept throwing me into random groups. No thanks!

If you're talking about the Stunt Races, you shouldn't fear public lobbies at all really. I've played hundreds and have only ever encountered one cheater. More opponents make the races more fun as well, and those new Rockstar Verified Stunt Races (the ones made by the community) are fucking awesome.

Irrelevant list because there is no Jedi Outcast.
How could they not include the Dark Forces series? I understand that the first Dark Forces was just a shooter but no game has done lightsaber fighting better before or after Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast.

I'd play Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy any day, the former especially for the multiplayer and the latter for the singleplayer (mp in JA is a buggy mess, afaik there has only ever been ONE patch that fixed minor things, shame on you Raven Software >:( ...)

Knights of the old republic were also really good games. Of course it's typical EA that they had to completely ruin it and make a MMO out of it. Bunch of utter morons. The second kotor was better, though. Better story, more interesting characters. Doesn't mean the first one isn't good. No, it's superb! But I guess I always liked Obsidian's story writing more than Bioware's, although their games are always a buggy mess (here's looking at you Alpha Protocol - such an interesting concept ruined by terrible shooting mechanics, a myriad of bugs and one of the worst PC ports I have ever seen).
Hope I'll be able to find some time to buy and play Tyranny over Christmas.

I really wish there would have been a sequel to Republic Commando. Another hint that the author has absolutely no idea what he is talking about when he says it feels more like a Tom Clancy game. But then again he probably only saw the new games. Because when it comes to tactics then Republic Commando is nothing like Ghost Recon or Rogue Spear.

Unfortunately I never played the older games, like Tie Fighter etc. so I cannot say anything about those but how the hell is Star Wars X-Wing Alliance not on that list. Instead you get Pod Racer (not that it's a bad game, it was actually pretty good but basing a game on one of the more boring parts of The Dark Menace is kinda weird - or just a cash grab). Just go home, Gerald.

I also thought that the omission of Dark Forces made this list irrelevant. That game was not only one of the best Star Wars games, but one of the best FPS games of it's time as well.

Anyway, at least Jim (fucking) Sterling (son) will be happy, he (fucking) adores this game. I could never get into it even though I love roguelikes. But I'm more into the actual ASCII-type 'pure' rogues, like Brogue (which is awesome on an iPad, btw!), the original Rogue (which is extremely hard to get into) and stuff like Dwarf Fortress's Adventure-mode, along with newer ones like Caves of Qud, COGMind, Claustrophobia, and ADOM...

Pixel Dungeon is a free rogue-like for android (prolly costs $ for iOS) that recently got released on steam as well. Many good variants also, like shattered and sprouted.

Just saw that a new single player Mechwarrior title (Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries) is in the works:

About fucking time.

Looks like it's using unreal engine, which is a bit of a surprise considering it's being made by the same team that made Mechwarrior Online, which used Cryengine IIRC.

Crazy, I just saw the 3rd episode from the 3rd season of Black Mirror last night, which was based on this kind of blackmail. Been really impressed with the new season so far!

This is why the whole ladder system means absolutely nothing. The people at the top are all cheating.

This is why I absolutely despise and hate PVP. It takes away from the devs putting real time into creating a real game instead idiots running around swinging their dicks to see who can be top shit head.

LOL. Most of the people at the top are also streamers and on well recognized teams who play competitively. I wonder if this is just confirmation bias leading you to say these things, or perhaps you actually do have a 20-gallon tinfoil hat picking up on all these signals?

GM mosquitoes? No thanks, not after watching the last episode of Black Mirror.

They're going about it all wrong! We clearly had the technology to tackle this problem decades ago, as demonstrated in this older British documentary regarding modern pest elimination:

It's a 1 time purchase like Guild Wars series. As other's stated they took the single player part and added more people

But make you live in a tightly controlled world, where you are basically the equal to everyone. If it were coop skyrim with player ran servers... fresh and fun would live there, I wouldn't be bound to boring equality. That to me that is the downfall of a mmo... it has to be under rigged rules.

The newer Elder Scrolls games feel like this to me already, with the world leveling up around you as fast as you are. To me, these are "rigged rules", and have been in TES games for quite a long time now. Morrowind was the last Elder Scrolls that didn't fuck this up.

Only time will tell what Trump will actually do and not do, of more importance is what congress will and won't let him do and what they'll demand in return. The danger isn't Trump it's the GOPs control of congress. What do you typically get when this happens? War. Unemployment. Increased military and law/prison spending, social services and infrastructure spending slashed. Then people remember why them having control is a bad thing and then it takes the Democrats 8 years to undo all that damage...only to see the cycle repeat itself. That's the definition of insanity.

The modern life of a USA citizen. Don't forget during that 8 years of un-fucking that we generally have to do after a Republican president, is filled by nothing but obstruction and government shutdowns because of these crooks signing pledges to their rich donors that they will not support anything that increases taxes. That anyone middle class or lower votes Republican is the biggest con-job of the century.

Can't play Sombra for shit yet She's really not for engaging enemies. It's all just hacking and skulking. Interesting maybe once I get the hang of it...

shes good at ambushing when you use invisibility to get into a dark corner behind the enemy, then take out a weaker foe and teleport back to your beacon on top of a safe health kit. its a play style i'm not much a fan of, but I can see it's utility. It changes the game for a lot of different strategies like when bastion is being shielded on a payload, and she hacks the shields or the bastion.. it definitely throws a monkey wrench into the mix. Also for last push/captures, having her go in invisible while the team sneaks together nearby and she disables them for the attackers to rush in and obliterate. lots of possibility

He talked a good game and it got him elected. But as you point out he's bringing in Neocons. Also he's bringing in a lot of lobbyists. Not only does that portend badly for workers but it also means Trump's promise to drain the swamp is dead in the stagnant brackish water.

I bet you voted for Hillary...a corrupt and serial liar. I'm sure you would have been posting links about her crony appointees, right?

Where the FUCK did this notion that Trump is *not* a corrupt and serial liar come from? Jesus people, wake the fuck up. If 10 years ago someone would have told me we would have people white knighting behind Donald Trump on behalf of how non-corrupt and truthful he is, I would have doubted such ignorant human beings existed. But here we are, in fucking bizzaro world.

Can't wait for that holy grail of monitors that has an awesome refresh rate/response time and an IPS/OLED quality display. We're getting there, but it sure is taking a while. I'm just happy that higher refresh rate monitors became a thing at all in the late 2000's.. 60hz sucked. After calibration most high refresh rate monitors look good enough for your average consumer and that's whats important though. Factory settings on TN monitors are probably the worst out there, but the displays are much better looking after doing a bit of tweaking and plugging in the ICC from tftcentral or somewhere else.

It'll be $35 for the Origins edition on Black Friday, if you want to wait until then.

Is this the type of game I can have fun with if I'm, generously, bad at multiplayer shooters?

They have characters in the game that are IMO specifically for people who aren't very good at multiplayer shooters.

Mei uses her gun to freeze people and you basically just spam it in their general direction until they can't move anymore and shoot them repeatedly while frozen. Her Ult freezes a large area and she can shoot the sitting ducks inside of it.

Characters like symmetra and winston don't even require you to aim your weapon to hit people, only requiring you to be nearby and also giving you tools for mobility so you can get close by. Make a nest of sentrys with symmetra and you basically trap anyone who enters your prey, slowing and damaging them with your sentries while you spam your weapon on them as well. Winston has a quick dive-in ability that will let you get to your squishy targets, a shield to block enemy fire when you get there, and a gun that basically doesnt require aiming either, just has a short range.

Then there's Torbjorn, who has auto-aim turrets for you to sit back near and learn the sentry placement game, if you're into that kind of thing.

Overall, there's lots of opportunities for different play styles and levels of skill.
